As is now well known, the beach has since gone down. We didn't know this until we'd abbed down and I'd pulled our rope. The only way I could see to gain the route from the beach was up the overhanging crack/groove to the right then out left on crozzly breaks to the bolts. I was planning on using chockstones in the crack as we only had extenders but was talked out of it. It could've been anything between HVS and E4 (trusting rockfax guidebooks to be thoroughly researched is a silly thing to do). After trying to rope up and swim out (!) somebody kindly hauled secured our rope for us to ascend.
